Chelsea, Spurs target Cahill vents frustration at Bolton

Chelsea and Tottenham are on red alert after Gary Cahill turned on Bolton Wanderers teammates following defeat to Sunderland.

The England defender could be set for a January exit after growing increasingly frustrated with life at the Reebok Stadium.

Saturday's 2-0 loss to Sunderland was a fifth straight Premier League home defeat and 25-year-old Cahill, who has also been linked with Arsenal, said: "A few of the lads, myself included, need to have a look and question themselves over whether they are doing enough.

"You can maybe afford to carry one player but you cannot afford to carry a handful and it has been different players in different games.

"When you are under pressure, there is only so much you can head out and defend. It is difficult because I was out there (against Sunderland) thinking, 'Why are we under so much pressure?'

"We were defending all the time. We have to sort it out."
